At Clarity Way addiction and mental health treatment center, we apply the best in traditional and alternative therapies coupled with a full assortment of recovery-enhancing activities designed to treat the whole person. We respect each client’s unique interests, beliefs and the pace at which they move along the recovery path.
Clients work with our treatment team to design a personalized program that focuses both on overcoming addiction and learning skills for sober living. We have found that the inclusion of activities that promote physical health and creative expression can be essential in preventing future relapses.
Some of our therapies include:
Intense, frequent one-on-one support from our highly trained staff is a large part of the treatment process. Clients participate in several individual sessions per week, which may include cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, music and art therapy, life skills training and more.
Addiction is a family disease. We involve the entire family so everyone understands the underlying issues and can support one another through the recovery and treatment process. Family members learn about the role each member plays in addiction and are able to address issues and feelings in a safe, supportive environment.
Neurotherapy can identify chemical imbalances or areas of ineffectiveness in the brain and uses neurobiofeedback to improve them. With enough training and practice, clients can learn to implement certain actions to temper chemical imbalances that may lead to drug or alcohol temptations. This helps identify and treat co-occurring disorders, which in turn helps those in recovery stay sober.
This process taps into the mind’s natural ability to heal via bilateral stimulation of the eyes, which can unlock stored traumas. Clients may focus on a blinking light while recalling problematic events. The intellectual and emotional minds sync up, enabling healing.
This is a way of embracing the common denominators that run across all therapeutic modalities. Clients experience numerous sessions and identify therapists with whom they feel a greater alliance to help them progress further in treatment. Clients are exposed to multiple modalities, with the hope that they will connect with one of those techniques as well.
Open-ended questions, an affirming attitude, reflective/active listening and summarizing what the client has said are components of motivational interviewing, which meets clients where they are in their recovery process.
Clients take part in nutrition education to help them establish healthy eating patterns and food choices they can incorporate into their overall well-being. We also ensure that food does not become a component of addictive patterns, and we help clients for whom this is already an issue.
Through music, clients engage in self-expression and communication and process emotional blockage. Songwriting or improvisation with sounds and recorded music may be used, as well as experimenting with various instruments. Our state-of-the-art recording studio provides a comforting environment for clients to tap into their creativity as they recover.
Various media in a nonjudgmental space helps clients express what they may not be able to verbally communicate through talk therapy. Eco-therapy is also explored—taking art into nature with the idea that each person is a part of their environment, rather than a visitor to it.
We help clients address the range of spiritual issues and questions that often arise in treatment. Our program encourages spiritual connection, without promoting a specific spiritual avenue.
Addiction counselors educate clients on chemical dependency so they understand both the underlying issues of addictive behaviors as well as the science of addiction.
Key Pilates concepts include centering, concentration, control, precision, breath and flow. Clients improve circulation and range of motion, as well as enhance strength and agility and decrease stress, anxiety and tension.
Practicing yoga can improve one’s strength, agility and concentration and help quiet the mind. It involves not only physical postures or “asanas” but also breathing and stillness. Our yoga instructor tailors each session to the physical abilities of the client.
The feet can be the most strained area of the body. Exercises that strengthen and soothe the feet can help alleviate pain, freeing up the client to engage in fitness activities and therapies.
A cardio workout based on the teachings of mindfulness, positive psychology and the law of attraction, IntenSati brings together aerobics, martial arts and positive affirmation, empowering the mind and body.
Meditation involves conscious awareness of breathing, calming the mind and engaging the senses. By becoming aware of the body and breath, attention can be brought back to the mind, allowing practitioners to stay in the moment.
Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massages help clients take time to relax and de-stress.
Our life purpose coaches help clients focus on goals and important decisions they will need to make when they leave treatment.
Clients can tap into their body’s natural self-healing ability and find physical balance to support recovery through acupuncture. Acupuncture can help alleviate depression and anxiety, while strengthening immunity and lowering blood pressure.
Clients are helped to achieve a natural yet altered state of mind marked by a strong openness to the emotional self where communication with the subconscious mind is present. Hypnotherapy accesses the alpha brainwave state, which is similar to that of a young child who is more open to change.
Clients engage in an action-oriented visual art that allows them to work with anger, resilience, forgiveness, relapse prevention, family of origin issues, addiction and trauma, family issues and PTSD.
Clients work with a life coach to optimize their treatment experience and create a plan to implement it in their lives once they return home.
Reiki is described as a “spiritually guided life force energy,” or “universal life force energy.” Reiki is offered either by laying the hands on the body or hovering one’s hands above the body.
A way to relax and alleviate stress, reflexology involves applying pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to organs and other components of the body.
Clients may benefit from this noninvasive tool that helps correct defects in the curvature of the spine. It involves the use of essential oils strategically placed on the back.
A lively fitness program incorporating hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo and martial arts. It is adapted to all fitness levels and abilities.
Clients stretch and use light hand weights/dumbbells.
Many who are dealing with addiction are not focused on the physical self, which creates a disconnect between body and mind. Fitness training sessions teach clients the benefits of physical release as they acquire positive behaviors that are part of the self-care approach.
